Allen After Hours / Celebrations of Place: An Evening with Local Artists

Allen After Hours / Celebrations of Place: An Evening with Local Artists

Thursday, May 4, 2023 at 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Join us as Cleveland-based artists explore place and belonging in an evening of creative response to the current exhibition The Language of the Streets and Michelangelo Lovelace’s These Urban City Streets, a painting of Cleveland and the focus of the 2022–2023 Shared Art Program. Shared Art uses a work of art from the museum collection to establish a communal space where students of all backgrounds can begin, and continue, their Oberlin journey together.

Access Statement:
These events are held in a wheelchair- and rolling walker-accessible building. The lecture space is wheelchair accessible, with moveable seating, and near wheelchair-accessible restrooms. Restrooms are gender-specific; visitors are invited to use the restroom of their preference. Listening devices will be available for use during the presentation, but ASL interpretation will not be offered. Most talks will be recorded and available with closed captions on the museum’s Vimeo page after the event. Please email access questions to Jill Greenwood,

Michelangelo Lovelace (American, 1960-2021), These Urban City Streets, 2013. Acrylic on canvas. Oberlin Friends of Art Fund, 2018.27.
